Clue 1

Let’s start with an easy one. Put www.heritagequay.org/archives into your browser. On a desktop computer you should see a search panel on the left and a list of archive collections on the right. On mobiles and tablets the layout may vary.

Scroll through the archive collections (remember to check more than the first page but you don’t need to go too far!) until you find one that matches the following clue, and click on it:

My title is national, my content is musical and I’m full of scores and recordings

You’re now inside that collection. There are two things to spot.

1) It now says the collection name in the search panel under the Reference Number. This means that any searches you do in the other boxes, (like adding a date) will only search in that collection.

2) The right hand side shows the different sections of the collection.

We’re looking for a musical score (the section code for this is SC) whose title is a Greek mythical story about a long journey

Keeping the collection code in the Reference Number field, type the name of the story into ‘Title or Description contains’ and press go. You should get 6 results.

The score you’re looking for is just for singers

Click on the one you think it is to see if you’re right. There should be a letter in the description (keep a note of it) and the next clue attached as an image. If you can’t see these, you’re not in the right place yet. If you can see the letter but the the image isn’t loading – get in touch and let us know!
